All Seven Concord City Pools Open Friday

All Seven Concord City Pools Open Friday
June 17, 2024

Just in time for summer, with schools letting out and a major heat wave almost here, all seven of Concord’s public pools will open at the end of this week.

It’s the first summer since pre-pandemic times that’s been possible: All pools were closed in 2020 and lifeguard shortages have meant that one city pool, the one at Garrison Park, has been out of commission for the last three years. This year, with a pay raise and boosted recruitment efforts, there are enough lifeguards to go around.

The six pools open this Friday, while the splash pad at White Park has been open on weekends since the start of June and will be open evenings this week.
